throughout the country, that on the floor of the house today we passed the ryan-romney republican job losing budget bill which repeals the affordable care act. at least the part that's about care. it takes the savings that we have in the bill, uses it to sustain their tax breaks for -- that are unnecessary and not job creating for special interest. so it's sort of a hoax that you would take the money and repeal the bill. so no benefits but we'll keep the savings. it is in sharp contrast to the bill that was our democratic alternative put forth by chris van hollen, our ranking democrat on the budget committee. and that was a bill that's job creating with investments and innovation and rebuilding our infrastructure and innovation that relates to energy. it's about investing in education so that we are competitive and number one to build that, strengthens and sustains our commitment to our seniors, whether it's their economic or their health security. in contrast to the ryan bill, billion, almost $100 $the 8 billion from pell grants, $100 billion from pell grants, and in the decade ends the is
successful and mitt romney was elected they would have gotten their way. neil: but, it is they might get their way wit president behind them. but declines numbers, might make it difficult even with the president. >> no question, righto work, and end of collective bargaining is bad for unions and workers. you have republican governors, like chris christie, who is supportive of private sector unions and collective bargaining, it is not the end of the world, but,hey will support a man who standing by their agenda, that is the way it works in washinnton. it works other way. so, you know, unions -- >> i don't know that they would have needed to getting any. a lot of folks watching this, say, i see they are in trouble in washington having a heck of a time since last year in wisconsin, losing out on some big state cutbacks even in california and what is going on across pretty were the southeast. so, they beg to feel like custer? >> i think for most part, you have to think about president obama's second term agenda, which you know, parts of it may affect the unions, but he is focused on gun cont
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
with the palestinians and broker an apology over a commando raid. he didn't win the presidency but mitt romney plans to have a say. he's asking political and business leaders to a four-day retreat in utah in june. the idea, look for solutions to the country's problems. romney says he wants to stay engaged in public policy. among those invited are new jersey governor chris christie and house budget chairman congressman paul ryan. >>> 149 airport control towers around the nation are set to close because of spending cuts. the faa says it is targeting low to medium traffic airports. closures could also effect big airports causing delays of as much as 90 minutes. i asked a former air marshal and union president representing air traffic controllers if this would affect air safety. >> there's no concerns for the public as far as safety is concerned. i believe with these closures we'll have somewhere between 150,000 flights that take off and land per year. to give you an idea of what the percentage is, there's more than 26,000 flights that take off and land every day. you are talking 150,000 throughout the
. it was clear that what ryan has put up in what he calls a budget and what he and mr. romo ran on was -- romney ran on was the republican platform. now they bring it back as if there was no election. >> neil: do you think the budget submitted by senator patty murray, which doesn't approach balance and increases spending and increases taxes, is what the american people voted for back in november? is that what they voted for? >> do you know there's no one that challenges that america's on the road to recovery. if you think for one minute just saying that you are cutting spending, that doesn't mean that you are cutting savings. it doesn't mean you're not -- more money. >> neil: even under the -- we're cutting the growth. are you saying -- >> you're talking about -- jo congressman, yes or no, do you think cutting spending should be a goal? yes or no. >> should i think cutting -- yes, it's how you cut it, of course. everybody believes in cutting. >> neil: what would you cut? >> there's so much money that's already been cut. if we had the obama law, things were cut there. ryan knows it, because he to
, it's a good thing that mitt romney did not have any money in the cyprus banks. seriously, russia bailing out -- question, if cyprus leaves the euro zone, so what? does anyone care? >> no, and ben made a good point about the difficulty of valuing the gas reserves from what i heard, that may be the best p s option, it will not add more debt. if you borrow more money, we will not give you bail out. what other option do they have? >> ben steele, let me ask you, so, if cyprus is kicked out of the you're he oh -- the euro zone, does that trigger a run on leaving the euro zone, is greece next or does anybody care? >> it may very well lead to a crisis in the eu, larry. the cyprus is forced by the eu to abrogate the deposit insurance scheme, what does it mean for deposit insurance schemes throughout the eu, we could see a run on spanish banks and italian banks and u.s. money market funds are heavily exposed to european banks so there could be problems within the united states. >> so we may need russia to save the economy. holy cow, how did we get to this point. many thanks to ben steele,
the romney/ryan ticket. he believes he just didn't sell that austerity enough. he has said that. he believes, oh, we just didn't message it well enough. the american people knew exactly what they were selling and they wanted no part of it. and yet here they come, bringing back the same tired losing ideas again. >> now, you know, congressman, today during the debate, house republicans insisted that the public's spending can't create jobs. take a listen. >> we're not promoting additional stimulus spending as the budget being proposed is. a giant proposal for additional spending did not help us several years ago. jobs do not come from additional federal spending long term. >> congressman, new polls show americans of both parties want the federal government to spend to create jobs. 91% are democrats and 63% of republicans support a federal government program that would put people to work through infrastructure repairs, is what they support. and 93% of democrats and 56% of republicans support the federal government spending money to create more than a million new jobs. this is just a fact. and th
people, tax breaks which mitt romney and paul ryan talked been on the campaign trail. >> neil: they were without raising the overall rate. now we have the rates raised. so republicans talk of a need for a trigger. they might go along with this tax break stuff and all their closing the loopholes, that they did agree it's sort of wasting time and money and the tax code, but you guys have then got to, as part of the trigger, agree simultaneously to these cuts you talked about. what do you make of that? >> well, first of all, the difference is republicans have never said they're willing to close some of those tax loopholes for the purpose of reducing the deficit. which is what the bipartisan -- >> neil: i got a couple on you. i suspect no angel in the ranks of either party. but they did say that they would be open to closing these loopholes but without this being the only negotiating point on the part of democrats. not more taxes but this time you have to put up -- your party has to put up specific cuts, and they both go off at the same time. >> well, i couldn't -- we can certainly try to de
the elections last year. ryan said it's not because of the budget that romney and mr. ryan lost, but there were other things that played there as well. let's listen to representative paul ryan. >> this is a good week for all us represents, a week where we bring to the country a responsible, balanced budget. the reason we are balancing our budget is because it is a necessary means to an end which is to improve people's lives. we balance the budget without raising taxes. we're actually growing the economy. it appropriates a fasters a healthier stronger economy to create more jobs. michael: the reason a lot of republicans probably voled against this bill is it doesn't stand a prayer in the senate. it is not going to pass the senate. this is almost a symbolic vote. they voted on this ryan budget now a number of times amounted i had has not really passed ever. john boehner was happy because what they did also today was approve by 318-109 a federal spending bill to keep the government funded through september 30, which averts a march 27 shutdown of the government. here is the speaker of the house exc
was on "morning joe" today on this station with dan senor who is a romney campaign adviser and we were talking about the change in politics of gun control for these red state democrats. you're a democratic leader in the congress. look at this and give me your response. >> they are under a the lot of pressure to buck their own party in pursuit of keeping the democratic majority. >> i would want senator reid to be very careful because we learned from last year's elections that a decade ago, two decades ago is no longer what some of those states in terms of the electorate has become. and i think you could galvanize your vote if you took some stands in some of those states. >> congressman? >> look, the way the mayor's doing this is the way he ought to do it. i'm a democrat. i want democrats to be in a majority. but there comes a time when politics must not supersede that which is right. the majority of us in this country believes the direction we're going in terms of universal background checks is the right thing to do. if some democrats fall or stand in the way, so be it. i want to be in the majo
technology companies. anybody else that was an investor in business, whether you were me or mitt romney at bain capital, you look the at three items you would look at on any business plan. one was, did that business invest in its workforce? because in a global economy, it is a imloabl competition for talent and the most important criteria you can look at if a business is going to be successful are the workers going to be traininged, are theying go to be able to compete and do the job? the second thing you'd look at in any business i would look at is, does that business is havea plan to invest in its plant and equipment, whether you are creating software or making widgets, are you going to stay competitive in a very competitive marketplace with how you make things? and the third issue is, no matter how successful your business is today, are you going to stay competitive in this global economy and how do you stay ahead of the competition? because no matter how good you are today, somebody tomorrow will come up with a new idea. businesses that met those three criteria, i would invest in.
." be careful what you wish for. >> what do you want me to tell romney? i can't tell him to do that. i can't do that to himself. you're absolutely crazy. >> i don't want to bring up a very successful show called "the apprentice." >> oh, from sea -- oh from sea to shining sea. yeah. >>> what could possibly go wrong? did the right thing we wouldn't notice the convenient change of heart about hollywood? nice try. but we gotcha. orldly things. but there are some things i've never seen before. this ge jet engine can understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the ground and more time in the air. suddenly, faraway places don't seem so...far away. ♪ governor of getting it done. you know how to dance... with a deadline. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. this is awesome. [ male announcer ] yes, it is, business pro. yes, it is. go national. go like a pro. then i read an article about a study
, a source told me mitt romney has not paid taxes for ten years, he's got a record of this slander and these lies. >> happy wednesday, sean. look, this is a majority leader in the senate that's gotten caught lying many times and when the marine corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated, they're saying he's lying again. harry reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate and what he is trying to do is just cover the president's butt on sequester. the president himself started to cover his own butt by playing such silly games as shutting the white house tours down. this is just another version of that. remember, donald trump offered to pay for all those white house tours. >> sean: whoa, whoa, whoa. >> and the president didn't take him up on it. >> sean: and wait a minute, i offered to pay for a week after eric biology golling got start started. by the way, it's off the table, i pay enough in taxes. >> you and bill maher. >> sean: yeah, he's even sick of paying taxes and california democrats are losing him. gee, time to wake up, bill. but here is my po
the juicy earmarks are for special interests. want to know why mitt romney had to fiddle his taxes to get up to a 14% tax rate? which, by the way, is a lower tax rate than a solitary hospital orderly pays walking down the halls of rhode island hospital at night. how does he get it so he has to fiddle his taxes to get up to a rate lower than a hospital orderly pays? how do romney and the hedge fund billionaires pull that trick off? look here in alli babba's cave for the carried interest exception. do you want to know where exxonmobil, which is the richest and most profitable corporation in the history of the world, where exxonmobil gets its hands into the american taxpayers' pockets? look at the big oil subsidies in alli babba's cave. want to know how corporate jets get special favored tax treatment compared to the commercial jets that ordinary mortals fly? look at the accelerated depreciation schedules in ali baba's cave of tax tricks. if using the phrase, "left-wing manifesto" seems a little strident, a little exaggerated about a budget proposal for 50% spending cuts and 50% revenues and yo
challenges with respect to the economy and the budget. governor romney did the same thing. and both of them said the american people faced a very important and fundamental choice. and the american people chose. they chose to support president obama's vision of accelerating economic growth, putting more people back to work, taking a shared responsibility approach to our long-term deficits so we bring them down in a balanced smart way and they rejected the idea that we're going to move the economy forward by giving windfall tax cuts to the very wealthiest in the country and the benefits of that would trickle down and lift everybody up. they rejected that lopsided approach that balance the budgets on the backs of everybody but the folks at the very top. balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education by slashing important investments. in that category of spending we make these important investments for our country and our future, they double the cut from the sequester. so those are our investments in our kids' education. those are our investments in science and research to help power ou
, this new ryan republican budget looks a lot like the old romney/ryan republican budget, that americans less than six months ago rejected at the polls. >> earth to chairman ryan. come in, chairman ryan. come back to earth, because people want to get to work. people want to make sure that the earned benefits that they pay for are there for them when they finally need them and i think what we have is a budget on the democratic side that reflects the reality of people on earth. >> all right. congressman, you want to respond to the democrat? >> we want to compete for the earthling vote as well. i don't really know what to say about javier there. i like javier quite a bit. we disagree on some of these things. we're the ones that have the bipartisan idea to save and strengthen medicare not only for the current generation but the next generation. we're the ones with the courage to say our entitlements need repairing if we're going to avoid a debt crisis and make sure they don't go bankrupt. we are the ones proposing fundamental tax reform which a lot of centrist democrats agree with us on this, wol
are being planned come out that on the floor of the house today we passed the ryan-romney budget,an jobs-losing which repeals the affordable care act to pick it takes the savings we had in the bill, uses it to sustain their tax breaks that are unnecessary and not job-creating for special interests. hoax you take the money and repealed the bill, but no benefits, but we will keep the savings rate is in sharp contrast to the bill that was a democratic alternative put forward by chris van hollen, our ranking democrat on the budget committee, and that was a bill that was job-creating, investments in infrastructure and innovation that relates to energy, about investing in education so we are competitive and number-one, to build and strengthen and sustained at have commitment to our seniors, whether their economic or their health security. in contrast to the ryan bill, which cuts almost $100 billion from $98 billion, from pell grants. $100 billion from pell grants --pet and crack grants grants. and is a job loser in the short and long term. the contrast could not have been different. one, a sta
shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. there is no precedent for something coming off a national ticket and going right back into congress wi
, push the party message and earn votes with ticket-topper mitt romney. then came last november. remys did hold on to the u.s. house of representatives and majority of gubernatorial seats among other win, yet given the fiery and sometimes ugly blame game, mr. priebus might have been wished for the days he was recognized as a rising star all while taking the republican party by storm. he's been working on campaigns since he was 16 and wound through the wisconsin republican party ranks and up to the rnc. he is proud to be a lifelong green pay packers fan. -- green bay packers fan. we're told he played a mean game of softball during his time working on his law degree at the university of miami. a time to reflect and look forward happens in any party that loses, but it doesn't lessen the sting when you're the recipient. mr. priebus has been working on a way to rally the faithful and plot a new strategy for the midterm election in 2014 and presidential contest in 2016. one of the silver linings which happened along the way is getting reelected as party chairman. to create a playbook for his
will just say politically i thought that was the greatest offer that governor romney had. he was a very good manager. in my opinion, we have had enough speech makers, we have enough war presidents, we have had enough grand and glorious stuff, we need somebody to run this government. like the presiding officer ran the state of virginia. and it takes hard work and you have to stay on top of it, and it would have been great for us to have had real top management so that every cabinet person when they are hired is -- understands they have a duty to produce more for less for the american people. and every sub cabinet and sub cabinet and sub cabinet person and every department head gets the message from top leadership on down, you're expected, like larry thompson and i did, to share a hotel room, if need be, to save your -- to save your debt, save the -- running up debt in the united states government. and this budget doesn't do it. i think we quoted earlier what "the washington post" said, march 15. in short, this budget document gives voters no reason to believe that democrats have a viable plan
rob portman, a prominent republican senator who was considered as a running mate for mitt romney has decided he has changed his stance on the issue of same sex marriage. he now supports it after years after being oppose toitd. the reason is very personal. he says he has a gay son and he wants that son to have all the same rights as anyone else when it comes to marriage. what strikes you about this story? >> barry goldwater. it really takes me back. barry goldwater was frankly became sort of a centrist republican and when his nephew came out of the closet and said he was gay, barry goldwater thought the republican party should be inclusive. what happens to these men once it's in my family tolerance starts to look a lot different and when his son will came out that changed things. >> i always like to give the analogy are you for torture or water boarding. no. how about if torture and water boarding would stop your child from dying the next day. of course. we're all ideologues. >> as a lawmaker your actions should be grountded in the constitution of the united states. he should be makin
on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget.
to revenue. again, we heard from governor romney and others last year that there are about $4 trillion in these disers to -- distortions and preferences in the tax code that help very wealthy people. and what we say is we should get out some of that clutter, some of those preferences and use some of that to help reduce the deficit. and we say at the same time when u do tax reform, don't touch middle-income taxpayers and when we asked our republican colleagues to give us that assurance in the form of an amendment in the budget committee, they all voted no. so, yes, we think that you can eliminate some of the tax breaks and preferences that mr. mcclintock just talked about, but you can use some of them to reduce the deficit. but the republican budget won't use one dime of those to help reduce the deficit. i now yield two minutes to the gentleman from washington state who is both on the budget committee and on the ways and means committee, mr. mcdermott. the chair: the gentleman from washington is recognized for two minutes. without objection, so ordered. mr. mcdermott: mr. chairman, i as
